Rapper Bhad Bhabie has responded after she was accused of cultural appropriation. Some fans were not happy with the social media star after she posted a video to Instagram with some really dark makeup on, but during a recent Instagram Live, the 17-year-old denied that she was trying to look like a different race.
“If I wanted to be black, I would be saying the n-word. I would be doing s**t that black people do. Act black? I don’t know what the f**k you’re talking about,” she said. “Who wants to be black? I don’t understand that, I really just can’t comprehend it.”
The “Gucci Flip Flops” songstress also claimed that rapper Lil’ Kim wears light foundation but doesn’t receive any backlash for it.
“No disrespect towards Lil Kim, I’m actually a fan of her, but the girl wears foundation that’s too light for her face,” she continued. “The girl went and got a nose job to have a smaller nose like white people. Y’all don’t see that? She turned herself into — and like I said, I don’t have a problem with it. She can do what makes her happy, that’s all her. But what I’m saying is, she got surgery to make herself look like a white person and she’s wearing makeup that’s light and y’all don’t say a God d**n word about her, but I put on foundation that makes me look tan, and I get hate.”
For those who forgot, the internet star, whose real name is Danielle Bregoli, shared a series of selfie videos to social media on April 6, 2020, and fans were quick to notice that she had a much darker complexion in them.
“You want us to forget that you was just caucasian last week,” one of her followers commented, with another adding, “Oh s**t, you switched up races on us.”
“I’m still pretty sure that foundation is NOT your color,” another fan wrote. “Girl, you look gorgeous, but I didn’t know who tf you were at first,” a third user claimed.
